Who's left for the Redskins on day two?

The first round is in the books and for now, the Redskins have to wait out 37 picks before they are on the clock again. After having way too much fun with my first-round mock, I decided to project all those picks from 33 thru 69 with some analysis thrown in here and there...33. St. Louis Rams: Cordy Glenn, Georgia, GOT34. Indianapolis Colts: Coby Fleener, Stanford, TE... Though not selected in the first as many predicted, Fleener blew away scouts with his 4.45 speed. No wonder he averaged 19.6 yards last season and showed the ability to stretch the deep middle. Fleener won't last long in round two and considering the Colts tight end position has gone from strength to question marks, reuniting him with his Stanford is simply idea.35. Baltimore Ravens: Peter Konz, C, Wisconsin... Concerns over Konz's strength pushed him into the second round. Would help the Ravens as a potential fill-in at guard for the departed Ben Grubbs before eventually taking over at center for veteran Matt Birk who is on a one-year deal.36. Denver Broncos: Jerel Worthy, Michigan State, DT
37. Cleveland Browns: Stephen Hill, Georgia Tech, WR
38. Jacksonville Jaguars: Courtney Upshaw, DEOLB, Alabama
39. St. Louis Rams: Rueben Randle, WR, LSU
40. Carolina Panthers: Janoris Jenkins, North Alabama, CB
41. Buffalo Bills: Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford
42. Miami Dolphins: Andre Branch, OLB, Clemson
43. Seattle Seahawks: Lavonte David, OLB, Nebraska
44. Kansas City Chiefs: Bobbie Massie, OT, Mississippi
45. St. Louis Rams: Lamar Miller, Miami, RB46. Philadelphia Eagles: Zach Brown, North Carolina, OLB...Depending on the evaluator, Brown is either a stud who was worthy ofbeing a first-rounder or an inconsistent sort who left onlookers wanting more. The Eagles need linebackers so they will see what Brown can do for them.47. New York Jets: Alshon Jeffery, South Carolina, WR
48. New England Patriots: Brandon Boykin, CB, Georgia
49. San Diego Chargers: Kendall Reyes, DE, Connecticut
50. Chicago Bears: Mike Adams, OT, Ohio State51. Philadelphia Eagles: Josh Robinson, CB, Central Florida - They shipped Asante Samuel before the draft so Robinson steps into nickel corner role.52. Tennessee Titans: Trumaine Johnson, CB, Montana
53. Cincinnati Bengals: Vinny Curry, Marshall, DE
54. Detroit Lions: Dwight Bentley, CB, La-Lafayette
55. Atlanta Falcons: Dwayne Allen, Clemson, TE
56. Pittsburgh Steelers: Alameda Ta'amu, DT, Washington57. Denver Broncos: Brock Osweiler, Arizona State, QB - Yes, theBroncosadded that Peyton Manning guy, but who knows if he will make it through the entire season and the backup position is Tebow-less.Denver can groom the 6-foot-8 Osweiler behind the future Hall of Famer.58. Houston Texans: Mitchell Schwartz, T, California
59. Green Bay Packers: Devon Still, DT, Penn State
60. Baltimore Ravens: Mychal Kendricks, ILB, California
61. San Francisco 49ers: Amini Silatolu, Midwestern State, G
62. New England Patriots: Brandon Thompson, DT, Clemson63. New York Giants: Jeff Allen, G, Ilinois - The offensive line is aging and frankly, not that impressive despite the Super Bowl winning run. Allen can play inside and out, but figures to play guard on the pro level.Third Round64. Indianapolis Colts: Kelechi Osemele, G, Iowa State
65. St. Louis Rams: Ronell Lewis, OLB, Oklahoma
66. Minnesota Vikings: Chris Givens, WR, Wake Forest
67. Cleveland Browns: Derek Wolfe, DE, Cincinnati
68. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Bobby Wagner, LB, Utah State69. REDSKINS: Zerbie Sanders, OT, Florida State - Sticking to my earlier predictionof the massive four-year college starter being the pick, especially with linebackers Kendricks and Wagner off the board. The alternative in this scenario would be grabbing a corner like Louisiana-Lafayette's Dwight Bentley or Oklahoma's Jamell Fleming. An outside the box pick could Georgia tight end Orson Charles.

Bryan Stork clarifies next move after week of speculation with Redskins

Bryan Stork clarifies next move after week of speculation with Redskins

After days of speculation if Bryan Stork would actually end up in Washington, the former Patriots center clarified his next move via Twitter. 

Redskins GM Scot McCloughan traded for Stork earlier this week after it became apparent New England intended to release the 2014 draft pick out of Florida State. It was unclear, however, if Stork would accept the trade to the 'Skins as he mulled retirement options. 

MORE REDSKINS: WASHINGTON STARTS CUTS EARLY BEFORE DEADLINE

Stork has dealt with a number of concussions in his two-year NFL career. After playing in a Super Bowl as a rookie, his 2015 season was limited by head injuries. 

Coming to the Redskins, Stork may have an opportunity to compete for playing time. Kory Lichtensteiger is installed as the starting center, but he struggled in the third preseason game against the Bills and was lost for much of the 2015 season to injury. 

McCloughan has openly said he wants big, tough guys up front on the offensive line. Stork - at 6-foot-4 and 310 lbs. - with a documented nasty streak definitely fits that bill. 

Whether or not Stork pushes Lichtensteiger for the starting spot - or even competes for the No. 2 center job with Spencer Long - the price for Stork is tough to argue. McCloughan gave up just a conditional seventh round pick to acquire the former New England starter.

Redskins cut 10 players before Tuesday deadline

Redskins cut 10 players before Tuesday deadline

The Redskins have started the process of trimming their roster to 75 players by the Tuesday deadline. The team announced that 10 players have been waived.

  • T Al Bond
  • T Cody Booth
  • LB Shiro Davis
  • LB Ejiro Ederaine
  • CB Jeremy Harris
  • LB Willie Jefferson
  • WR Valdez Showers
  • WR Dez Stewart
  • WR Jarvis Turner
  • RB Kelsey Young

The only surprise on the list is Jefferson, who was thought to have a chance at an outside linebacker spot. But apparently the coaches are going to let Houston Bates and Lynden Trail compete for that spot.

The Redskins had 88 players counting against the 90 player limit. So with the 10 players cut today they are a 78, leaving three moves to make before 4 p.m. on Tuesday.

Reports: News encouraging for injured Redskins LB Ryan Kerrigan after MRI

Reports: News encouraging for injured Redskins LB Ryan Kerrigan after MRI

The Redskins received "good news" after linebacker Ryan Kerrigan underwent an MRI Saturday to further diagnose a groin injury he suffered in Friday night's preseason victory over the Buffalo Bills, according to multiple reports.

Kerrigan was injured in the first quarter on Friday and he was held out for the remainder of the contest. CSN Insider JP Finlay said the injury was thought to be "minor" after the game.

The injury, regardless of the timetable for his return, exposes a larger issue about the lack of depth in Washington's linebacking corps. Finlay expands on that here.
